Stephen Gottlieb: The Value Of Democracy

Sep 12, 2017

Driven by the Tea Party, Republicans gave us a Congress that hasn’t been able to get much done. Saying less government is better, they take credit for getting nothing done, and leave immigration, tax policy, and health care to fester. It took the Democrats to make a deal with Trump to open the spigot even on hurricane relief.

NFL:

The NFL is moving quickly in hopes of reversing a federal judge's decision that blocked the league's six-game suspension of Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott in a domestic violence case in Ohio.

The league has asked the judge who ruled in Elliott's favor to stop the preliminary injunction that cleared last year's NFL rushing leader to play while the case is in court. A notice of appeal was also filed with the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.

NFL:

The Green Bay Packers could be a lot more than an offensive juggernaut this season.

The Packers gave up no touchdowns and turned a big defensive play into a score to earn a 17-9 win over the Seahawks. Seattle had to settle for three field goals and finished with just 225 net yards, with Russell Wilson completing 14 of 27 passes for 158 yards.

WAMC's David Guistina talks with Ken Lovett of the Daily News about a potential state senate seat for Democrats on Long Island, and remembering the lives lost on September 11, 2001.

MARY LOUISE KELLY, HOST:

Jonathan Guffey has chiseled youthful looks and, at 32, does not have the haggard bearing of someone who has spent more than half his life hooked on opioids. That stint with the drug started at 15 and ended — he says for good — 22 months ago. He has a job working with his family in construction, but his work history is pockmarked by addiction.

"I've worked in a couple of factories for a short amount of time, probably just long enough to get the first check to get high off of," Guffey says.

NFL:

The Kansas City Chiefs have opened their season by knocking off the defending Super Bowl champs.

Alex Smith and rookie Kareem Hunt led an offense that shredded the Patriots in a 42-27 win at New England.

Smith threw a pair of long touchdown passes and Hunt scored three times after fumbling on his first NFL carry. Smith was 28 of 35 passing for 368 yards and four TDs.
